I am not super passionate about photography. I like doing it and everything, but I can take two years off from it professionally (which I tend to do after I have a child) and not even miss it.
And here is why I think that is... for me, what I like about photography is creating. And I can do that in other ways besides photography. I can create a child. I can create our living space. Christmas cards. Meals. Blog posts. The possibilities are endless.
What is fascinating me most lately is the creation of moments. I want to create beautiful moments. Moments with my kids. Moments with my husband. Moments with my friends.
And moments are easy to create because all you really have to do is acknowledge them once they occur:
My youngest daughter running down a hill... this is a moment.
Hanging out with my friends at playgroup... this a moment.
Watching the latest episode of "Supernatural" with my husband... this is a moment.
It's beautiful. Life IS beautiful.
